ASM International, The Materials Information Society, has unveiled a bold new Web-based ecosystem that aims to create a comprehensive convergence of all the tools, information, networking, education and support needed to maximize the full potential of materials and materials professionals. ASM currently represents 38,000 members in a variety of markets, including: aerospace, automotive, metalworking, industrial design, medical devices, MEMS and nanotechnology.
To punctuate the enormity of bringing "Everything Material" together for the entire community of those who study, create and apply advanced materials, ASM is offering a compelling array of incentives. Through September 30, 2007, materials professionals who register at http://www.asminternational.org/ will become eligible for a $35,000 give-away of ASM products and services, and free access to ASM's newest and most popular ASM Handbooks on corrosion and metalworking. All registrants will receive one free month of ASM membership, providing full online access to features such as member search, expert directory, and much more.
"As the leading society for the materials industry for nearly a century, ASM has a fundamental responsibility to facilitate continuous innovation in the development and application of advanced materials," said Lawrence C. Wagner, president. "By putting state of the art, customizable tools and information at the fingertips of materials professionals, we not only intend to precipitate such innovation, but to support materials developers and users throughout their entire career lifecycle."
The new ASM global community is a project that has been three years in the making, representing an investment of nearly $6 million. While redesigning a website may be common in today's tech-savvy world, the changes for ASM are far-reaching and represent a radical shift in the way that ASM provides leadership for the entire materials community and industry. The Web-based materials portal is highly-interactive and customizable, allowing for collaboration and information-sharing equivalent to a global chapter meeting of materials professionals. The site represents a huge leap forward in terms of performance, design, and content, and provides the online infrastructure for a thriving scientific and engineering community.
